Local authors' book release and signing this Saturday at Sankofa: "Why Are We Not Famous?!"

This sounds like a fun event: two local authors, Jessica Pryce and Jasmen Rogers, are releasing a book and having a signing at Sankofa Bookstore and Cafe on Georgia. 

If you aren't familiar, Sankofa is a neat little spot with pastries, sandwiches, books and events. I wrote about them a few years ago and recommend checking it out. Here's more info on the signing:
If you love comedy, come support two local DC authors (Jessica Pryce and Jasmen Rogers) as they release a brand new comedy book! The title is Why Are We Not Famous?! 
The event will be held at Sankofa Bookstore and Cafe located at 2714 Georgia Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001 on this Saturday December 14, 2013 from 6-8pm. 
If you would like to purchase a copy of the book, it is now available on But there will be books available for purchase at Sankofa! 
Book Summary:
“If you have ever been called awkward, you should read this book. It is not a self-help, so at the end you will still be weird, but you will find new reasons to embrace who you are. For the less than 1% of you who are not strange at all, just buy this book and make fun of us. We really don’t mind. We have willfully exploited our unique lives, all for the sake of comedy. You’re welcome. We don’t just go through life, we laugh through life! We hope after reading this book you will recognize the inherent fame, humor and joy in each day you live. Get ready to experience the amusement of our friendship, our brand new comedy style, our dating quips, and our traveling adventures! This book highlights the collision of two radically opposite personalities that have created a courageously hilarious team!” 
The authors will be giving away free gifts and T-shirts at the event as well!

Hope to see you there!
